NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – Recent heavy rainfall has prompted a temporary closure of the Comal River, according to the New Braunfels Police Department.
The closure was issued Sunday morning. This means that residents are not able to go tubing or do any other recreational activities, given the increased flow of water.
Police said the heavy rains have caused the increased flow, measuring approximately 440 cubic feet per second, with poor water clarity.
Minor amounts of debris have also been found along the river banks and the Tube Chute dam, according to officials.
City officials will reevaluate the river conditions Monday morning to determine if recreational activities can continue.
